These 2 I melted the wax with a heat gun and moved the card in circles, still can't see any gold hmmmm.... Posted by Picasa

I'll have to take a pic of these all, you can't see the colours or the gold when I scaned them.  Posted by Picasa

First try with a traveling iron, it was way to hot to try to work with so I melted it on a paper then put a piece on top and iron it. I had unplugged the iron was hot for a while.. The iron is quite old, so I won'tbe able to use it.. You really can't see the gold in the pics. Posted by Picasa

Went with Jan to Hutches last night for dinner, Hutches has been down at the beach for over 50 yrs now. They always had the best fish and chips(real not frozen) and they make a mean sportsman burger.. They now have an ice cream booth with delicious flavors.. You can sit and watch the water. There is a 6k boardwalk so people walk, jog, rollerblade. Being by the water is my favorite place in Hamilton. On a clear day you can see the CN Tower in Toronto... Posted by Picasa

Magpies Envy

Sandy asked us girl( Suzie, Tonnience
and I) to do a challenge,
so we decided to make a doll. It was the first
time making one .. I did enjoy making it a lot..
I started with a wire frame ( already made) .
I paintedthe white material with fabric transfer paint,
then drew with ink and pen and used a chinese
paint brush..

Magpies Envy


It was Tonnieces birthday Sunday so I got her
a painting case and thought I would personalize
it for her. She liked Smarty Pants as her
artist name but it was already taken, but to me
she will always be a smarty pants. The cards,
bags, purese she makes are truly amazing,
she is such a smarty pants...
I got her some beautiful cards when I was
in England( they have beautiful cards there)
and also a Best Friendship Award, which she
deserves since she is all a best friend is
suppose to be. I also made her a little box filled
with script Ts she can use in her work..
I love you more my friend....
